My 67 comet sedan 460 power with aluminum heads and intake c-6 roll cage and sub frame connectors .Fiberglass bumper and hood single seat no interior to speak off weighs 3420 with me inside .This was done at the track since my car is track only .For comparisons sake it has been 10.72 @ 124 . An fe with aluminum heads intake and water pump would probably be 50-75 pounds lighter than a similar 460 combo .Why not let Brent set you up with a solid lifter camshaft ? My 460 and 427 have solid lifter camshafts .Happy fourth ! Doug

I would be up front if I didn't think I could help.

I enjoy cam design probably more than any other facet of engine building.  I send out a lot of cams, but in the past couple months I have sent cams to 4 guys who were immediately able to either dyno the engine or get the car on the racetrack to quantify a difference. 

Two guys were members of my Cleveland forum. 

One had a 393 who had reached a wall and couldn't get his '70 Mustang to pick up.  He had a solid roller from Crower.  By simply decreasing the amount of overlap, I picked him up .06 in the 1/8th and 1 mph.  (Was running low 6.30's...)

Another guy was running an early Mustang with a 408C.  His previous cam was chosen by his builder.  I picked him up .4 in the quarter and he was still able to drive the car an hour each way to the track with power brakes.

The other two guys are members here.  I switched one guy's cam in his 428 from a 294S to a smaller hydraulic roller and picked him up 27 hp and 35 lb-ft.  I'm still waiting to hear back from the other guy.  He has a pulling truck with a 390 and wanted to pick up some more mid-range hp and torque. 

With fryedaddy's drivetrain and desire to pull rpms, I think we could gain some significant power with a solid flat tappet.

Not trying to derail the thread, but that recycling place is ripping people off with scales that are way off. That's not only illegal, but highly unethical. I think I'd be calling somebody about that.

another ripoff is gas pumps.i have a nice race gas can,well marked and accurate measurements on the side.a local store offers 93 no ethanol,so i took my can to the store and bought 5 gallons.it only showed 4 1/4 gallons in the can.i told the manager and she told me later i was right,she had it checked.same thing happened when i got 5 gallons of 110 leaded at another store,4 1/2 gallons for 5

If you want to stay hydraulic, I don't think I can help you much.  If you want to go solid, I could pick you up some ponies.
Brent,i will be contacting you for a solid flat tappet cam and lifters.the 292 hyd is a good hyd cam for what it is,but with the rest of my combo if you think a good solid cam will help,im all for it

i would just about bet that most or a big percent of gas stations pumps are off some and nobody catches it.on a 20 gallon fillup you could be way overcharged!
